How long does it usually take to get the tax refund back after you send it all the paperwork?

I am hoping to get answers regarding my husband's case. He sent everything in on Dec.10th. He called DFAS early last month and was told that "payment is pending.' I know with the holidays things can get held up but is it possible we will be seeing that refund soon?

Thanks in advance.

A tax refund released by direct deposit takes about 3 weeks. A mailed check tax refund takes about 6 to 8 weeks. If you were told "payment is pending" I  think that you would have the money very soon.
